Zikr means “Remembrance” and refers to the remembrance of God as the only reality, at one with the totality of existence. It is a form of prayer that combines the chanting of sacred syllables with rhythmic somatic movements within a seated meditation practice. Zikr illustrates the journey of grasping at emptiness, which eventually drives us inwards, where we discover the spirit and find refuge within the heart.
The Inayati-Maimuni Order is a Universalist Sufi-Hasidic lineage founded by Reb Zalman Schachter-Shalomi and rooted in the esoteric knowledge of ancient Egypt, from which all Abrahamic traditions derive. Honoring the blessings passed between Reb Zalman and Pir Vilayat Inayat-Khan, and echoing the interfaith practices of Egyptian Rabbi Avraham Maimuni (1186-1237), the Inayati-Maimuni Order bridges the universalist Sufi transmission of Hazrat Inayat-Khan with the mystical Hasidic teachings of the Ba’al Shem Tov.
As an open Halqa led by an initiated Zakir, we are authorized to practice Zikr by Netanel Miles-Yepez, who is the current Pir of the Inayati-Maimuni Order.
